  • Small Business Cybersecurity Awareness

    UTSA is establishing a pilot program, with assistance from the Small Business Administration, to develop and demonstrate effective cyber security protection measures for small businesses working with the Department of Defense. In this new, more interconnected environment, the biggest risks to the security of advanced technologies and intellectual properties are in the form of cybersecurity. UTSA’s top-ranked Center for Infrastructure Assurance and Security and the Network’s SBDC Procurement Technical Assistance Center will partner to cultivate a methodology and tools for broader protection of small businesses in the United States.
